Fully Configurable Dropdown Date Picker Plugin With jQuery

A simple yet fully configurable dropdown date picker plugin that converts the regular input field into separate "day", "month" and "year" dropdowns for more convenient date selection (e.g. DOB Picker). 


  • Min/max ages, dates, and years.
  • Custom date format.
  • Multi-language.


# Yarn
$ yarn add jquery-dropdown-datepicker

$ npm install jquery-dropdown-datepicker --save

How to use it:

<input type="text" id="date">

3. Set the initial date. Default: null.
